Happy Friday from the WBRC FOX6 Newsroom! This is Jonathan Hardison with a look at some of the stories we're working on for you tonight.

Politics of divorce

Tonight we're working to get more information and reaction to the political stunner today that Alabama's First Lady Dianne Bentley is divorcing Governor Bentley. Where does this leave the Governor's political power heading into a crucial special session to try and fix the state budget stalemate? Christy Hutchings is talking to folks on both sides of the aisle tonight.
